HONG KONG, Jan 11 (Reuters) – Shares in Alibaba.com (1688.HK), China’s largest e-commerce company, rose 5.2 percent on Monday on hopes that strong export data for China in December will boost the company’s outlook. By 0647 GMT, the stock was trading at HK$19.80, up 5.1 percent. Growth in China’s exports and imports last month blew past expectations, providing fresh evidence of the vigor of the economy and strengthening the case for Beijing to let the Yuan start climbing again.
